How to check the quality of instant coffee

An invigorating drink that can be prepared instantly - a lifesaver for those who are always in a hurry. Manufacturers sometimes add chicory, chestnuts, figs, roasted acorns or date pits to instant coffee. All this affects the quality of the product. How to quickly check it at home.

High-quality coffee has no additives, powder or granules completely dissolve in water. The drink has a pleasant color, taste and aroma.

If ground components are added to the coffee, they may dissolve in boiling water. In this case, the taste and color will depend on the amount and composition of the ingredients. To quickly check the quality of instant coffee, you need to put it in cold water and stir it. All additives will fall to the bottom as a sludge. This would be evidence of a breach of technology.
